If you are a New Yorker like me you’ll be celebrating Malcolm X day tonight at the Schomburg center!

The Schomburg Center is proud to celebrate the 18th Annual Commemoration of the Birthday of Malcolm X. This year we have partnered with Changing Perceptions Theater as they present Happy Birthday Malcolm and Lorraine! A new generation of Black playwrights have interpreted portions of speeches, interviews and letters by Malcolm X and Lorraine Hansberry into short scenes to celebrate the birthdays of these historic figures.

This event starts at 6:30pm tonight May 19th – get tickets here!

A Smithsonian Channel film called The Lost Tapes takes viewers through some of Malcolm X’s important years of activism, Via Smithsonian Channel

In 1959, a 33-year-old minister from the Nation of Islam gains notoriety with his fiery rhetoric and keen intellect. His name is Malcolm X and over the next five years, this influential yet highly controversial civil rights leader will become an ideological hero to some and a dangerous enemy to others. Presented entirely through his speeches, newscasts, and rarely seen archival footage, The Lost Tapes: Malcolm X tells the story of the man who, by any means necessary, willingly put his life at risk to bring change and equality to black America.
